James Bond Night at Rosecliff Mansion

Sharing pictures today from NewportFilm's 007 night at Rosecliff. I have yet to see a documentary that I didn't love at one of their events. The featured film, Becoming Bond, is a must see. It tells the life story of George Lazenby and how he landed the coveted role of James Bond after Sean Connery stepped down. Lazenby was an Australian car mechanic who had never acted a day in his life and became an overnight star after filming Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). With the film's success, Lazenby was offered a million dollar signing bonus to star in the next seven James Bond movies -- he turned it down. In this movie George Lazenby shares his life story and finally answers why he walked away from wealth and fame. The film was engrossing, humorous, and risqué with a combination of face time with Lazenby and actors reenacting scenes from his life. The film style reminded me a lot of Wes Anderson! After every NewportFilm showing the director, or people behind the film, are present for a Q&A. For this film, the director Josh Greenbaum, hosted the usual Q & A with George Lazenby on Skype. This was such a fun surprise! Looking forward to more NewportFilm movie nights this summer.

  5. That sounds like a fun night and such a cool documentary! Was it hard shattering the wonderful illusion that's Bond by getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse?
